2018-2021 RAP update
Walking Together: USQ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2015-2017 was USQ’s first RAP. It has obliged the University to report regularly on progress made in implementing the 27 Actions and achieving the targets published in the Plan. This plan was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and supports our core business by engaging communities, providing pathways to higher education, improving education and employment outcomes and undertaking research that is both relevant and supportive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
A copy of USQ’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is available.
A strong basis for the USQ RAP refresh was the publication in March this year of Universities Australia Indigenous Strategy 2017-2020. Supported by all Australian universities, this landmark national strategy provides a blueprint for improving opportunities and attainment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, staff and communities. The Strategy includes 11 actions to which all Australian universities are committed.
The University is currently in the development stage of its next RAP and will build on the foundations set by existing documents both internal and external to USQ, in conjunction with community consultation.
